The COVID-19 pandemic demands an unprecedented response from governments around the world. Policy responses to the coronavirus are vast, varied in scope, and changing every day. COVID-19 Policy Watch summarises these measures and presents them in an accessible and comparable form. You can explore policies by country or topic.

COVID-19 Policy Watch will not be updated after 15 May 2020.
